Another town. Another school. Another Mclean. Ever since her parents’ bitter divorce, Mclean and her father have been fleeing their unhappy past. And Mclean’s become a pro at reinventing herself with each move. But in Lakeview, Mclean finds herself putting down roots and making friends—-in part, thanks to Dave, the most real person Mclean’s ever met. Dave just may be falling in love with her, but can he see the person she really is? Does Mclean herself know?
So something has been on my mind for a while and I wanna get it out there- I really, really think that this should be said to so many girls. If a boy likes you, and you know you don’t like him back, for the love of god, don’t lead him on. First of all, it’s just plain cruel. Second of all, it makes you look awful. Boys have feelings too, they shouldn’t be misused. I know you may like the attention, but let him move on. This means no cute texts or following his facebook page or holding his hand or anything else. Also, think of it this way. Just say you like a boy whose been hung up on another girl who leads him on? And you know this boy and you would be perfect together, but he can’t see that because he likes another “dead end” girl. Do YOU want to be the girl standing in the way of the happiness of two people? You can’t pick and choose when you like a guy. So either decide, hey, he’s actually my type, or stop all flirtatious communication asap.
Just let him go, it’s the least you can do.
I guess this can go for boys too… it’s never nice to be lead on, people!
Bacteria solve Sudoku
“The appeal of Sudoku has spread to the prokaryotic world. A strain of Escherichia coli bacteria can now solve the logic puzzles – with some help from a group of students at the University of Tokyo, Japan,” New Scientist reports. “ ‘Because Sudoku has simple rules, we felt that maybe bacteria could solve it for us, as long as we designed a circuit for them to follow,’ says team leader Ryo Taniuchi. The team began with 16 types of E. coli, each colony assigned a distinct genetic identity depending on which square it occupied within a four-by-four Sudoku grid.” Researchers “programmed” them to use RNA packaged in viruses to send information about their location in the grid. “By expanding these principles, 81 types of bacteria could solve a full nine-by-nine grid, says Taniuchi.”
